Brave new world? Or is it back to basics?

IOL CEO Andy Robinson's - 'Perspective' piece in Horizon's magazine 90

Author: Institute

I believe the spring and summer of 2020 has the potential to have some big impacts on the world of Outdoor Learning; more than the many lost learning opportunities and challenging economic and social impacts. The really significant interruptions to routine and established practice experienced by most of us, have forced a time of reflection and raised questions about the role and value of purposeful and planned time in the outdoors.

Change is in the air

IOL CEO Andy Robinsons' - 'Perspective' piece in Horizons magazine 82

Author: Institute

Evidence of impact is important and clearly articulated and demonstrable good practice is even more so.
How well do the stakeholders in education, learning, development and therapy understand how and when they might draw on options for engaging with nature and introducing outdoor learning to their work?
